yes it started out as a rental. it had 21K miles on it almost one year ago. we got it for $21K and it was only a year old.

we now have over 45K miles. it runs great.

i'm trying to get ready for a trip four wheeling tomorrow.

so i stole Cico7's idea of hiding my lights. i didn't like them out on my bumper. i'm always afraid i'll rip them off on something.

so i made a few tabs. welded them to the radiator support and was done.

alright. i may be a bit to high. i added the junkyard springs in the rear. i really like them over the stock crap. i gained about 2 extra inches in the rear. i'm going to trim them some more tomorrow.

here's what i did.

BEFORE


lengthened the rear bump stop. my tires where hitting inside the wheel well and my shocks were bottoming out. i added about 2.5" to them. i also removed the crappy spacer lift i sold to someone else.

stock bump stop


spacer lift.


extending bump stop
